Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes



Dolly Parton clears up the long-standing rumors that she’s secretly covered in tattoos.

“People said the other day that the reason you wear sleeves is because you have snakes tattooed all over you, and I said, ‘No, I don’t!'” the legendary singer told Savannah Guthrie on Tuesday while promoting the release of her 42nd album on the “Today Show.”

“I do have a few little tattoos, but they were mostly done to cover scars because I’m so fair,” admits Parton. “I do have a few but they’re not where you can see them… they are mostly for my husband.”
